No wonder this Occupy Wall Street crime wave is Time’s top story of the year. Never before have we witnessed such a violent peaceful movement.

An Occupy Augusta demonstrator has been charged with arson in connection with a fire Monday that destroyed a tent at the encampment in Capitol Park.

The state fire marshal’s office summonsed 18-year-old Matthew Meyer of Warren.

Capitol Police say he turned himself into authorities Wednesday morning.

Police say Meyer had been staying at the encampment for a month and was intending to move into the vacant tent.
